David M. Wilson: The Lost Photographs of Captain Scott

The Lost Photographs of Captain Scott


Description

Captain Scott perished with four of his fellow explorers on their return from the South Pole in March 1912. Almost immediately the myth was founded, based on Scott's diaries, turning him into an icon of courage in the face of impossible circumstances. But during the final months of that journey Scott also took a series of breathtaking photographs: panoramas of the continent, superb depictions of mountains and formations of ice and snow, and photographs of the explorers on the polar trail. But these photos have never been seen - initially fought over, neglected, then lost - until now, that is. For the first time, they are resurrected and are a humbling testament to the men whose graves still lie unmarked in the vastness of the Great Alone.

It's 1849 ...and Nellie O'Neill has arrived in South Australia on a ship bringing orphan girls from Irish workhouses. She has left the famine in Ireland far behind, and is full of hopes and dreams for the future. She wants to learn to read, to be part of a family once more and never to be hungry again. Can Nellie make her wishes come true? Join Nellie across all four stories about an Irish girl with a big heart in search of the freedom to be herself. Brave, adventurous, loyal, and clever, Nellie is a remarkable Australian Girl. Want to develop games for Xbox 360 and Windows Phone 7?
